Apple App Store Nears 25 Billion Downloads | $10,000 App Store Prize!
It’s hard to comprehend numbers this huge, but Apple’s App Store averages about 19,400 downloads every minute, or 18.5 million per day, or 1 BILLION per month!
Since the App Store debuted in July 2008, downloads have totaled 24.46+ billion. To put things into perspective, it was almost exactly one year ago that Apple celebrated the 10 billionth app download. That is pretty good progress in just one year. They gave away the same prize then, but the woman who won hung up on Apple’s first phone call to her, thinking it was a telemarketing call.
Another astounding statistic from Apple is that the App Store and iTunes Store combined had a record 140 million downloads on Christmas Day 2011. Apple also sold more iPhones, iPads and iPods in 2011 alone than the total number of Macs sold since it was introduced on January 28, 1984.
And, if you have an idea for a great app, get motivated! Apple has paid app developers more than $4 billion to date.
Predict the Date for a Chance to Win
When the App Store hits its 25 billionth download, one lucky user will win a $10,000 App Store Gift Card. That will buy you one heap of apps! (The gift card can also be used in iTunes or the iBook Store.) There’s also a way for you to win by sending in a contest entry form.
Apple has a live app download counter on its site, but can you guess when the big event might happen? It looks like things are speeding up a bit as the target nears. When we at RedSn0w download do the math, we come up with a date on or around March 4, 2012. What’s your best guess?
As of October 2011, there were more than 500,000 3rd-party applications available from the App Store, so you have plenty to choose from!
